The MLitt in Transnational, Global and Spatial History is a taught postgraduate programme run by the Institute for Transnational and Spatial History (ITSH) in the School of History.

Highlights

  • This programme provides a unique introduction to the emerging field of spatial history, including the study of representations of space, landscapes, mental maps, spatial practices and topographies of memory.
  • This programme promotes new transnational perspectives and ways of seeing the past through an explicit appreciation of scale in space and time.
  • Students will explore approaches to the history of cities as hubs, transfers and travel, the circulation of ideas and the migration of peoples. 
  • Students will explore a range of approaches to the study of global trade, the development of networks, comparative history and cross-cultural encounters.
  • Students will gain proficiency in powerful tools for mapping, geographic analysis and the study of social networks as well as skills in the use of non-textual sources and overcoming the challenges of translation and multi-lingual archives.

Teaching format

Teaching methods include seminars, fortnightly tutorials and practical classes. Class sizes range from individual supervision up to 12 students. The modules are assessed by coursework only; there is no final exam.

Students will spend the final three months of the course focusing on researching and writing the final assessment piece for the MLitt, a dissertation of not more than 15,000 words.

The School of History is home to a number of seminars which meet regularly throughout the teaching period from September to May. Papers are given by both St Andrews historians and invited guests.

The Institute for Transnational and Spatial History hosts regular guest lecturers, events and reading groups
